Siberian Tiger Mom with Cub

Mother Dasha and one of her two cubs from the Zoo Duisburg in Germany. Dasha is just three years old and these are her first cubs but she is doing a fantastic job raising them! They are healthy and often you can see her playing with them. She lets them chase her and hides from them behind tree trunks and large rocks inside their big enclosure. The zoo staff is very proud of her for doing such a fantastic job! She and El-Roi, their male tiger, just got together in late April when their new enclosure was unveiled to the public and they already produced healthy offspring. It could not have gone better for the zoo and this endangered species!
